Non-chlorophyll cacti. They have bright  color: red, yellow, orange, and others. They are grafted on some other cacti.

 Non-chlorophyll cacti can not grow on their own roots because they can not assimilate nutrients. To survive the non-chlorophyll cactus need to be grafted on other cactus that will supply it with all necessary nutrients.    It was discovered that these beautiful seedlings could not survive as they did not have "chlorophyll" and were therefore incapable of producing the necessary chemical changes involved in photosynthesis for the production of the "food" for the plant to grow and thrive. It was determined that if these tiny seedlings were "grafted" (an actual physical union of the vascular of the two plants) onto fast growing plants such as Hylocereus, that the "base" plant could provide the necessary chlorophyll for the "upper" plant (in this case the Chamaecereus seedling lacking in chlorophyll) to thrive.

Grafting cactus plants is a straightforward method of propagation which even a novice gardener can try. We have different stocks  for sale. Grafting instructions on how to graft a cactus. If you need instruction on how to graft a cactus, you can go to page "grafting-rare-cactus-plants and find how to graft cactus of Opuntia, or I can email you my Article.

The non-chlorophyll cacti Garden Centers sale non-chlorophyll cacti grafted on Hylocereus undatus stocks. This stock from Rain Forest has a very fast growing ability. When the sciens is young, it can grow also very fast. When the skin become harder, it could not more grow and get cracks. It could lead to rot. I tried to buy them and they lived only for one - two years. I grafted them on more slowly growing stocks. Now they are alive for many years.

Gymnocalycium mihanovichii cv. 'Hibotan'



G. michanovichii f. pink

G. michanovichii f. yellow-orange

G. michanovichii f. red


On the pictures are three forms of Gymnocalycium mihanovichii.

Gymnocalycium mihanovichii is commonly grown as ornamental plant worldwide. The colored forms of this species are colored because they are mutants that lack chlorophyll, and can only survived if grafted on another plant that has chlorophyll.

 It produces offsets easily and makes new grafting material plentiful.


I never seen in the Internet the blooming color non chlorophyll cultivars of Gymnocalycium michanovichii

G. mihanovichii f. pink Grafted on Myrtillocactus geometrisans
G. mihanovichii f. yellow-orange Grafted on Trichocereus hybrid
G. mihanovichii f. red. Grafted on 
Harrisia jusbertii

The top of this cactuses is not a fruit or a flower, it is actually the Gymnocalycium. This variety developed in Japan does not have any chlorophyll, and depend for its nourishment on the other cactus on which it is grafted.If the stock on which the non-chlorophyll cactus grafted is the Hylocereus, 

I do not recommend to buy. Hylocereus because it live 1-2 years.
It is good to re-graft it on something tougher, like Selenicereus, or Opuntia.
